LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – The La Crosse Concert Band Board of Directors has canceled all June concerts and rehearsals due to COVID-19 concerns.

The directors have continued to monitor the virus situation. With Governor Evers’ extension of the stay-at-home order through May 26 and the closings of all school buildings in the La Crosse School District through June 30, the board decided to cancel the first month of performances.
